Netflix is adding five new shows based off Dr. Seuss books.
The company announced Tuesday that One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish, The Sneetches, Horton Hears a Who!, Wacky Wednesday, and Thidwick The Big-Hearted Moose are coming, though CNN noted that no date was provided.
The streaming service tried to emphasize the learning value of the shows, saying they "will explore themes of diversity and respect for others, all told through fun and engaging stories that incorporate the whimsical humor, distinctive visuals and rhythmic style of Dr. Seuss."
But as CNN pointed out, adding children's programming could help it compete with other services like Disney+ and even just kickstart its slowing growth.
The five shows announced Tuesday join the existing Seuss show, Green Eggs and Ham, which starts its second season April 8.
